Cruise Kakariki to the Maori Rock Carvings

6 reviews
We have been cruising to the iconic Maori Rock Carvings since 1982. <br><br>This all-year-round activity offers relaxation, fun and adventure on the water, the Kiwi way. Get right up close to this culturally significant 46 foot (14m) high rock art. <br>Excellent, amusing and current commentary on Lake Taupo, the volcanoes and the carvings.

Liked very much . Liked the no kids. Loved the different temp pools. Yep definitely relieved aches, made your skin feel great...we visited on public holiday so quite a few bodies but still worth it. Shame they charged so much for the terrace walk so didn't get to do that. Still a nice relax and will do again

Stopped in at the Wairakei Thermal Hot Pools on a Saturday. Not too cramped but reasonably busy. Got a discount voucher from GrabOne. The pools are warm (three different pools, three different temperatures) and a beautiful bright blue. Walk around the terraces is an additional cost (voucher was also available on GrabOne). A short drive from Craters of the Moon geothermal walk.

Looking for some relaxation, we enjoyed an hour of soaking in the glorious hot pools followed by wonderful hour long massages. The whole experience was awesome and the staff extremely friendly. I’d recommend Wairakei Terraces to anyone who needs to unwind from the stresses of the world.

Visited Wairakei Terraces Thermal Spa on a recommendation of a friend. So glad I followed it up as I was going to take my mother and partner to another site 45min away toward Rotorua. The best thing about the Terraces is it's an adult only spa. The pools are set among the bushes making for a very tranquil and peaceful soak. Our favorite pools were the cool pool (about 26-30deg) and the hot pool (40deg+). Easily loose track of time soaking. Only negative is hard to see/know where the steps were in the middle pool. You would stub your toe at least twice (I did) trying orientate yourself around the pool. Magical place, definitely worth a visit.
